Leonardo Barrero, the armed forces chief, is heard verbally maligning prosecutors' investigations into the extrajudicial killings that have brought Colombia international reproach.

FILE - This Jan. 28, 2014 file photo shows House Speaker John Boehner of Ohio, left, accompanied by House Majority Leader Eric Cantor of Va. speaking at Republican National Committee headquarters in Washington. President Barack Obama is working to put two major emerging trade deals with Europe and Asia on a “fast track” to passage. But many congressional Democrats are working to sidetrack the proposed pacts ahead of this year’s U.S. midterm elections. The Democratic president finds himself in the rare position of having House Speaker John Boehner as an ally on the issue and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid as a foe. (AP Photo/J.

FILE - In this Jan. 15, 2014 file photo is Republican Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad in West Des Moines, Iowa.

About seven months later Branstad hasn't approved any payments but patients eligible for Medicaid-funded abortions received them anyway because the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics simply decided not to bill the state for the procedures.
